$50 per trim is only ridiculous if the $28 guy is giving you as good or better quality of trim. There is no replacement for, nor any amount of value on, that "gut instinct" that not every Keeper of Hooves might possess Poppy 1356 said: "Lowest I've seen here is $30 but those people are a huge gamble".
There can be a lot of truth to that, too.
I do know some farriers in my area that still charge their "10 years ago rates" to the customers that have been with them that long. The new clients pay for the increased costs of gas, farriers tools, shoes, nails, etc.
